Simple Womans Daybook
Wow,it's chilly here!It feels more like late November than mid October.It's like we skipped from hot weather to cold overnight! I've enjoyed breaking out the warmer quilts,sweaters, and crock-pot this week to make a few cozy up meals,pot roast,mac n cheese w/ham,chili.I also pulled out the bread machine and fired it up this morning,the house smells so good! I haven't done this in awhile so today seemed to be agood day for it.................
My Daybook for Thursday October 15th 2009
Outside my window... gloomy,windy,and chilly I am thinking... I need to get so much done I am thankful for... my dad who turned 88 yesterday From the kitchen... bread! I am wearing... red sweater and black pants I am creating... nothing really right now I am going...to pick up my daughter from choir and to the store later I am reading...nothing right now I am hoping...to be able to take the kids to the Pumkin patch this weekend I am hearing...the kids Around the house.....kids playing,dog sleeping,the usual One of my favorite things right now.......Reese Whitherspoons new fragrance for Avon,got a sample in the mail and it's just so romantic and pretty.
Well,that's it for today.I'm really hoping the weather improves a bit of the kids are going to need winter coats on trick or treat night!
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
